What are the Bija mantras?
They are: Om Lum Namaha, Om Vum Namaha, Om Rum Namaha, Om Yum Namaha, Om Hum Namaha
All these five Bija mantras are chanted in the order mentioned. They go to the source of problems. Sometime even after taking so many different medicines a disease will not be cured. At that time, if the Bija mantras are chanted in this order continuously, they will heal the issue.
How can we use Bija Mantras
The mantras can be chanted over a glass of water, say about 100 times and can be given to the person who has a problem.
If we want to balance this centre (or your house) we can chant these mantras.
For us, to balance our chakras this mantra will be helpful.
Bija mantras activate our chakras
The chakras have petals. Basic chakra has 4 petals, the Hara chakra has 6, solar plexus has 10, heart chakra has 12, and throat chakra has 16 petals. When we chant Bija mantras, the petals of chakras open up to receive the energy. So we can chant the mantras any number of times.
Chakras are connected to our body organs
Each and every chakra is connected to the organs/glands and some life issues attached to them. When you chant these Bija mantras continuously the organs, glands and life issues are healed. Do not chant them separately because all these Bija mantras form a cycle.
It is better to chant them together in the right order. Because the moment you chant Lum, immediately the next chakra (Hara) readies itself for its mantra as it expects that its own mantra (Vum) will be chanted next.
In addition, the moment one chakra is activated simultaneously the other chakras are also activated too. In the same way, if one chakra has a problem then all the other chakras will also have problems too. So it is better to chant all the Bija mantras in the order mentioned.
Stop the overflow
For too much of emotions – like sadness, and for diseases like diarrhea, bleeding, excess bleeding, and watering of eyes, we can chant OM LUM NAMAHA.
The mantra activates the earth element in us. When there is flow of water, we stop it by putting mud on that place to stop the flow. Like that internally also, we can activate the earth element by chanting OM LUM NAMAHA and stop the bleeding, watering etc.
Have a good sleep
This mantra will induce sleep also. We go our home to sleep (earth element).
Like that, when you are not able to sleep, it means your earth element is imbalanced. By chanting this mantra you are balancing your earth element.
It will stabilize you also. When you are feeling dizziness, or when you have vertigo problem, you can chant this mantra and you will become stable.
Digestion Related Mantras
Chant Om BUM Namaha many times. This is a very important mantra for healing intestine. This mantra heals bowel related issues, which will be indicated by a pain in the left abdomen because of the accumulation of gas in the intestine. When children have colic pain, you may notice them cry. Buy can be used for cold, cough also.
EEJO is wonderful remedy for gastric, digestive problems and head aches. After eating food, if Belching happens, then it means the Apanan – a type of prana that is supposed to flow down, is coming up. It will also bring down your head aches – which could be happening due to too much worry and thinking. One may also do Chin Mudra while chanting the mantra for better relief.
